During The CW's TCA panel earlier today, some major new details were revealed about the upcoming five-part "Crisis on Infinite Earths" crossover. For starters, Black Lightning's involvement in the event has now been confirmed (despite the fact his adventures don't take place in the Arrowverse) along with another major surprise. 

Kevin Conroy, who played Bruce Wayne/Batman in Batman: The Animated Series and the Arkham series of video games, will be playing "Bruce Wayne from the future" during this event. He presumably won't be suiting up, but is probably from the same world as Brandon Routh's "Kingdom Come" Superman.

In other news, the schedule for the event has been revealed, and The CW is going to keep us waiting over a month for the final two chapters in this five episode crossover:

"I’ve kind of grown with this character," says Benoist, who originally played Supergirl on CBS before the show was moved to The CW. "It took me a long time to actually feel that strength [of being a superhero]. I feel like if you don’t feel it from the inside out, it’s not going to translate."
 


"I get to be the Flash on TV, surrounded by all these other superheroes and it’s something I never want to take for granted," Gustin says when asked what being The Flash means to him.
 


"[When] they offered me the job [on Arrow], if they had said, ‘Yeah, you can have the job, but you have to pay us $5,000 per episode just to be in the show’ I would’ve been like, ‘Yeah, okay. Sure, I’ll do that,'" Amell says, reflecting on being cast as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow when the show launched in 2012.

"Arrow was the most important thing in my entire life by a wide margin. And then I got married, and it became the co-most important thing in my life. Then my wife and I had [our daughter], and Arrow dropped to number three, but I f–ing care a lot about it. I really, really do. I think about it all the time."
 


"I didn’t know what I was getting myself into," Lotz says, reflecting on being cast as Black Canary in Arrow. "I remember talking to my friend and was like, ‘I don’t know. I look terrible in this costume.’ She was like, ‘It doesn’t even matter how you look. All that matters is how you feel. If you feel good, you will look good.’ I was like, “Yes, I feel good. I look good. Let’s do it!'" 
 


"I feel like up until now I haven’t really been given the opportunity to play a character that has these dynamics of such severe trauma and such heartbreak and betrayal and loss," Rose says of her role as Batwoman. "She’s heavy. She has a really heavy heart for a lot of very valid reasons."
